1902-11 W600 Sporting Life Roger Bresnahan (Type 3) SGC 60 EX 5 - Pop. Three, One Finer. Among the most versatile players of the early professional game, Roger Bresnahan appeared at all nine positions during his Major League career but is best remembered as one of the elite catchers of the Dead Ball Era. Few players have been more influential in revolutionizing the sport from the inside, with credit for the popularization of protective gear, from shin guards to the first batting helmet, widely assigned to Bresnahan by baseball historians.

    We find him here in his prime, his photographic portrait the unmistakable work of Carl Horner, whose images populate many of the most celebrated trading card issues of the Dead Ball Era. This W600 issue is one of the most challenging of that era, a scarcity attributable to both the limited original production and the increased perils to survival that comes with its oversized dimensions. Only three have been graded by SGC, with this example at the middle of that tiny population. Typical edge and corner wear are the primary faults, with some minor soiling at the edges and age-spotting on verso.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $10,000 - up.
